Track Name: Swarming Spectres
Lost in a stream
'tween the wake and the dream I feel
Visions appear
Like a dream in my sleep turns real
An energy spread through the air
Soon I dread it observes me
With an evil intent
To my psychic extent this presence choke me
Frozen air, eyes I feel stare
Faceless apparitions
Freeze in fear, spectres drawn near
Swarming with precision x2
Approaching a ghost
A shade be my host at my side
From a mind state unknown,
Where the door to its home open wide
Unable to wake
From this state I can't break apart
This threat it create
When it eagerly make panic start

They have always been here
In a spectrum of fear far beyond
Swarming our world
Since the earth started turning around
At this spectrum I glance
Through "The Obsidian Sense" opened wide
Making me realize
There is no use to try to hide
Frozen air, eyes I feel stare
Faceless apparitions
Freeze in fear, spectres drawn near
Swarming with precision x2
Track Name: Anthropophagus
Licking his lips, a coated tongue
Breath of insanity, deep in his lung
Feverish eyes, guttural grunts
Brains, blood, bones, flesh, skin and guts (x2)

Waiting in the cellar, or around any corner
Or in your home, his mouth full of foam (x2)

Anthropophagus, sinks his teeth into human flesh
Anthropophagus, grinds his victims into mash
Anthropophagus, wants to try out something new
Anthropophagus, that's why in his dreams he's dreaming of you!

Nothing is sacred in his mind
Somewhere in a cave he has built a shrine
Collecting the skulls of his delicious meals
Praying to them with deranged, horny squeals

Anthropophagus (x4)

Anthropophagus, sinks his teeth into human flesh
Anthropophagus, grinds his victims into mash
Anthropophagus, wants to try out something new
Anthropophagus, that's why in his dreams he's dreaming of you!
Track Name: Mother Pestilence
From distant shores she moves with the wind
On rivers red, through poisoned streams
A plague angel float the seas
Mother Pestilence

We found comfort in her
In her black, withering embrace
We felt the warmth in her
In her fever, the illness in her face
We found comfort in her
In her black, withering embrace
We felt the warmth in her
In her fever, the illness in her face

With ill intent she greets us well
From home to home to fill the tombs
She poured the illness into our wounds
Mother Pestilence

Seed to sow and life to reap
Bodies wither and burn from the inside
Seed is sown and life is reaped
As she moves with the furious winds
Seed to sow and life to reap
Bodies wither and burn from the inside
Seed is sown and life is reaped
As she moves with the furious winds

When skin is touched by her embrace
And the winds she whispered found the trace
Into our pores
Within our lungs
We become her grey silent tongue

From distant shores she moves with the wind
On rivers red, through poisoned streams
A plague angel float the seas
Mother Pestilence

We found comfort in her
In her black, withering embrace
We felt the warmth in her
In her fever, the illness in her face
We found comfort in her
In her black, withering embrace
We felt the warmth in her
In her fever, the illness in her face
Track Name: Lost Transmission
Such tragic event
A victim clings to survival
Embraced by the reaper
A caress so warm the flesh burns
I witness in horror
This sight of disaster before me
Igniting panic emotions
Distorting what I feel

Are my emotions confused by the shock I endured?
As the fear and concern in my mind soon getting blurred
By a new sensational feeling, more frightful than mine
I enter the dying, sharing his body and mind

Activate transmission sequence
Connection applied
I feel how his agony, fears
And despair intertwine
A link of telepathy
In mind and body, has opened
Sharing his mortal fear
And doubt to survive

I sense the stage of death herein!
Are you taking me with you am I dying as well?
Are we already leaving this weak human shell?

Signal lost
Grains of life shall count the cost
Signal lost
Mind to ashes, skin to dust x2
The connection’s getting weaker
White noise flashes, turning bleaker
Free me from this intuition
Life fades out – lost transmission
Track Name: Dereks Don't Run
Plans of power, plans of greed
Woven like a spider’s web
Hiding, lurking, ready for battle
Brainless humans, feeble cattle

Killing – Planning – Plotting – Action
Killing – Planning – Plotting – Action

Plans of power, plans of greed
Woven like a spider’s web
Hiding, lurking, ready for battle
Brainless humans, feeble cattle

Killing – Planning – Plotting – Action
Killing – Planning – Plotting – Action

Now it is time to show the world
How an alien master race would run this planet
Suddenly they face the barrel of a gun
Cause one thing is certain:
Derek’s don’t run!

Just you wait ‘til I get my chainsaw
Then I will be reborn again
‘cause Derek’s don’t run!

Plans of power, plans of greed
Woven like a spider’s web
Hiding, lurking, ready for battle
Brainless humans, feeble cattle

Derek’s don’t run!
Derek’s don’t run!
Derek’s don’t run!
Track Name: The Empty Chapel
Hands folded - into desperation
Eyes reached up - to seek salvation
A dreamlike refuge - in tragic times
In need of comfort - when trust in man dies

Hands folded - into desperation
Eyes reached up - to seek salvation
A dreamlike refuge - in tragic times
In need of comfort - when trust in man dies
There is a silence here - deafening the trust
A distress call with no response
Answers never came
As candles burning out
Like the faith of the believer now seems lost


Illusive, intrusive silence in these halls
The only sound in here are your desperate calls

Rejoice! Your maker has abandoned you!
Rejoice!
Rejoice! Your maker has abandoned you!
Rejoice!

Hands parted - in desperation
Eyes shut - blind from salvation
A silent refuge - a mirage of mind
A believer abandoned
When trust in god dies
Track Name: Assailant of the Weak
You!
You invited me!
You opened the gate and let me in

A presence watching you - unseen
A presence touching you - so numb
A presence calling you - unheard
A presence becomes you...

I!
I coiled around your flesh
I opened your wounds and reached in

Stare in awe into the polished glass
A stranger staring back
You are replaced, your existence expired
As I smother your soul from within
Transformation! - No shelter from what's already inside
Transformation! - Into your being, unseen I slide
Transformation! - No shelter from what's already inside
Transformation! - Into your being, unseen I slide

Stare in awe into the polished glass
A stranger staring back
You are replaced, your existence expired
As I smother your soul from within
Becoming the unspeakable
Becoming the unspeakable

The chanting of prayers fades in a futile echo
The holy water dries up with no effect
I exist beyond the borders of your false beliefs
The face they knew will not be seen again
You!
You invited me!
You opened the gate and let me in
Track Name: Slaves to Eternal Insomnia
The night screams like a storm
In the vortex of your soul
It's digging like a worm
Into your mind... like a pole (x2)

Countin' the hours waiting
Writhing in horror the darkness
Infinite daylight no mercy
Thoughts jubilant rotating

(Repeat first verse)

(Repeat second verse)

The brain is spinning
The nightmares winning
Forever laughing
The minutes clicking
The clock is ticking
In slow motion (x2)

A tortured haunted sanity waits for the final test
It's begging for forgiveness, it's begging for some rest (x2)

(Repeat fourth verse)

(Repeat third verse)

The morbid angels of your soul await the final call
And in the darkness of the night they wait for you to fall
Track Name: Nackt und Zerfleischt
Blood is dripping from the leaves
Bones are lying all around
(The) scene will make your blood freeze
Before you end up dead on the ground (x2)

Naked and slaughtered, ripped and torn
Shrieks and laughter, madness and scorn (x2)

The land of thousand corpses, the land of no return
A world of teeth and knives, a world where you will burn

Naked and slaughtered, ripped and torn
Shrieks and laughter, madness and scorn (x2)

The land of thousand corpses, the land of no return
A world of teeth and knives, a world where you will burn

Nackt und zerfleischt! (x4)

Blood is dripping from the leaves
Bones are lying all around
(The) scene will make your blood freeze
Before you end up dead on the ground

Nackt und zerfleischt! (x4)
Track Name: Insect Mastery
Vacant, psychopathic
Life must take life
In the interest of life itself
Primitive, endurable
The one to inherit the earth
Will not be men

They swarm the earth
The legion of flies and insects
Long before the traces of man
They swarm the earth
The legion of flies and insects
Unnoticed and unloved they learn of life:
To inherit and dispearse

They breed
By millions underneath
A harvest colony
The insects of disease
Set free
A swarm of mastery
One thing in mind - to feed
This ancient tyranny

No face to smile with
Or portray what hides beneath
Like a mask without expression to maintain
Formed by hunger and the instinct to survive
The first one to apprear
Will be the last one to remain

They swarm the earth
The legion of flies and insects
Long before the traces of man
They swarm the earth
The legion of flies and insects
Unnoticed and unloved they learn of life:
To inherit and dispearse

Distinctive need for expansion
Nurtured by the winds of heavens above
Like a cloud contain this virus
Infecting by the numbers
The entire face of the globe

In the wake of earthquake and flood
Will rivers run red of human blood
And man itself will be extinct
While insects crawl with vile instincts

Hunger, survival, the meaning of life
A war eternal as the earth was created
Not by the gentle caress of love
But by the brutal violence of rape
